Under Orion Report Writer, there exists two data formats: Raw and Cooked. What do they mean?

Hi Guys,

I just noticed the two aforementioned data formats under the Orion Report Writer.

Please what do they mean?

How do they affect generating a report via using the Orion Report Writer tool?

Regards,

Hi,

A raw value is the value straight from the database, and the cooked value is the one that you would see in the web portal.

One example is node status.  A raw value would be "1" where as the cooked value would be "up".

In general, you would want to be using cooked values.
